If the iPhone 6c is real, it'll reportedly be a much more attractive unit than its predecessor from 2013, at least according to new rumors. Elsewhere, Apple is offering free repairs for iPhone 6 Plus units with faulty cameras, and Samsung is trying to win over iPhone users with a pretty extreme deal.
Apple has discovered that the hard drives for a few of its late-2012 iMacs are susceptible to failure, and is offering to replace the drives for free. Also, the Apple Watch may have had a negative impact on the Swiss watch market, and Apple seems to have pulled the first-generation iPad mini from its stores for good.
Some owners of the iPhone 5 have been experiencing trouble with the device's battery, and Apple today launched a replacement program to remedy the problem. Apple claims that the faulty devices were sold between September of 2012 and January of 2013 and suffer from shorter battery life and the need for frequent charges.
Apple probably could have gotten away with shrugging its shoulders at the recent news that a Chinese woman died from an electrocution allegedly caused by a faulty knockoff iPhone charger, but today 9to5Mac reported that the Cupertino company is taking a far more nobler stance. Later this month, it'll allow customers to bring in their old USB power adapters and receive new, Apple-designed ones for a lower price via a "takeback program."
